About UN CC:Learn

The One UN Training Service Platform on Climate Change (UN CC:Learn) is a collaborative initiative involving 33 multilateral organizations which supports Member States, UN agencies and other development partners in designing and implementing country-driven, results-oriented and sustainable learning to address climate change. The initiative was launched at the 2009 Copenhagen Climate Change Summit.

UN CC:Learn is included in the "One UN Climate Change Action Framework" of the UN System Chief Executives Board for Coordination (CEB). The CEB framework aims at maximizing existing synergies, eliminating duplication and optimizing the impact of the collective effort of UN organizations in combatting climate change.

UN CC:Learn contributes to the implementation of Article 6 of the UNFCCC on training, education and public awareness-raising, and the Doha Work Programme.

  • At the national level, UN CC:Learn supports a strategic and results-oriented approach to climate change learning through multi-sectoral and multi-stakeholder collaboration.
